Voyage and Dream

Time for July's tag with Tim.  Tim's Tag is a patriotic celebration which is very appropriate as we are celebrating our country tomorrow.  Unfortunately I didn't have the dies that Tim used so I created my own versions using a new die I just purchased.



I actually created my second tag first. This was my second version following Tim's techniques.  I brayered my background on this one. 




 I used the Silver Distress Paint for the left side and the Peacock Feathers Distress Stain for the right side of my tag.  I just purchased the Eiffel Tower Die about a month ago and hadn't had a chance to use it. I die cut a chipboard tower and a piece of an old book.  I then Stamped the harlequin pattern in versamark and heat embossed to form a resist. I sponged with the silver stain and then added a layer of the peacock feathers distress stain over that.  I repeated several times to get a darker shade of blue.  I stamped over the background of my tag the map to tie into my dream / voyage theme.

My second tag started with an alcohol ink background:

I used crackle paint on my stars and my bird die.  I then layered in the stamping in the background with black ink and then embossed the flowers along the side.
